PPGES-Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System

Published: 4/9/2014 3:17 PM


Kentucky is in the process of creating a Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PPGES). 


During the 2012-2013 school year, 30 principals from across the Commonwealth  participated in a PPGES field test. Data from the field test was collected throughout the year to further inform the system efficiency and policy consideration.​

The Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PPGES) was developed by Dr. James Stronge. The uniform performance standards used in this system provide a balance between structure and flexibility.  The goal is to support the continuous growth and development of each principal by monitoring, analyzing, and applying pertinent data compiled within a system of meaningful feedback.

During the 2013-2014 school year, the Principal Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PPGES) will be implemented statewide. Full implementation for accountability will occur in 2014-15.
